PointsBet Casino WV's launch day catalog features blackjack and about a dozen slots, including 88 Fortunes and Monopoly Megaways

PointsBet Casino Launches In West Virginia, With Pennsylvania Coming Soon

PointsBet Casino is now live in three states, with today’s launch in West Virginia.

The Australian company’s is expanding quickly, and should soon be offering casino games in a fourth state. PointsBet announced on Jan. 20 that it secured online casino license approval in Pennsylvania.

Online gamblers in the Mountain State have already been betting on PointsBet Sportsbook for five months. The company announced was taking bets there on Aug. 13.

In today’s press release about PointsBet Casino, the operator said West Virginians can already gamble on 15 games, including:

  • 88 Fortunes
  • Blackjack
  • Monopoly Megaways

Those games come courtesy of PointsBet’s partnership with Scientific Games Digital. The catalog of games should expand over coming weeks and months.

Another agreement, with Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races, provided PointsBet with its retail casino partner in the state. West Virginia law permits multiple skins per land-based partner, and this deal puts PointsBet on the same license as DraftKings Casino.

Where is PointsBet available?

PointsBet offers online casino and online sports betting in Michigan, New Jersey and West Virginia. Once it launches in Pennsylvania, that will also be a full-service state.

In addition to those states, PointsBet offers sports betting in:

  • Colorado
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Iowa
  • New York
  • Virginia

Sports betting has always been the operator’s focus. Although smaller than the likes of DraftKings and FanDuel, it differentiates itself with the “points betting” product from which it takes its name. Rather than a fixed wager, these bets give gamblers a chance to win (or lose) an amount that depends on the margin by which the score exceeds or falls short of the target.
